whistlerboarder Counter position 180's are awesome, and I find them allot easier and more stylish than the rotating 180's. The only downside is you cant progress up to doing 360's. My favourite trick to do is a switch backside 180 countered.

whistlerboarder When you've first learning 180's try riding up a side bank and popping your 180's off those. Get them dialled outside the park on stuff like that before trying them in the park. Here's a video breaking down the rest How To Spin a 180 – Freestyle Snowboard Trick Tips |

ThunderChunky I feel like doing Nollie 180's really helped me learn 180's. It just seems easier and feels better.

And because I know somebody is gonna say it, there are such things as a nollie in snowboarding. At least in my book.

SAddiction I find that most people have an easier time learning FS 180's first. The best way to start this trick is actually on the snow (no jump). Start by doing a toeside turn, shift to your heels and start to carve back across the hill. When you get to the apex of your second turn (on your heels) point your backhand down the hill in the direction you are going. You will feel your lower body want to catch up to your (now) rotated upper body naturally and you will find it easy to pivot this 180 on the snow. After you feel comfortable with this motion take it to a small "side hit" jump where you approach already on your heel edge.

The most important part when spinning a FS 180 is to bring your weight forward so you don't land back seat, which is very common when learning this trick. making sure you point down hill with your back hand to initiate this spin, as opposed to pulling your weight back with your front shoulder.

Other than that just remember the basics for any kind of jumping, approach at a comfortable speed, keep your knee's bent and stay relaxed.

Hope that helps.

rasmasyean I just wanted to chime in an say that I recommend the Snowboard Addiction videos as well. Many of the things they coach help with a gradual progression as well...and not just "Do it like this!".

I've found that some of the stuff I figured out myself from "reading and random videos" I would have been able to get it faster by watching the Snowboard addiction videos had I watched it first. It's well worth the (low) price, and if it's too much for you to spend, you should prolly not go snowboarding.

myschims I always feel most comfortable doing backside spins off of jumps but frontside on flats haha
just make sure whatever your doing, send it and commit, nothings worse than landing sideways and smacking your face into the ground haha.

CheeseForSteeze I use the "counter" position, especially if you want to score pretzel rotation off. For bagel, it's easier just to slowly wind the body around as you about to hit the end. The "counter" position is good for learning boards/lips too; I found it was easy to learn by just thinking of it like a shifty.

And Cr0 - something needs to be done about this next year. Who came up with this idea? You guys just have a bunch of kinked down bars laying around?

Cr0_Reps_Smit ha thanks for the compliments guys, that was something new i learned this year and quickly became one of my go to set up spins for switch spins on jump lines.
